The oldest collection of Chinese poetry, more than three hundred songs, odes and hymns. Tr. Legge (en) and Granet (fr, incomplete).
The male pheasant flies away,
Lazily moving his wings.
The man of my heart ! –
He has brought on us this separation.
The pheasant has flown away,
But from below, from above, comes his voice.
Ah ! the princely man ! –
He afflicts my heart.
Look at that sun and moon !
Long, long do I think.
The way is distant ;
How can he come to me ?
All ye princely men,
Know ye not his virtuous conduct ?
He hates none ; he covets nothing ; –
What does he which is not good ?
